ISP130 Numeracy for University and Beyond

ISP130 Numeracy for University and Beyond is a new for-credit course that will be offered in the 2021-22 Academic Year.

This course teaches quantitative literacy and numeracy skills in order to develop core competencies identified as essential for university and beyond. ISP130 enhances students’ ability and confidence to engage with quantitative information in a variety of contexts, by applying mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches to make informed decisions, to problem-solve, to effectively communicate and express quantitative information, and to create logical, evidence-based arguments. Rather than focusing on math specific skills, the course explores relevant concepts as they appear in diverse disciplines and authentic real-life situations, such as numbers and magnitude, patterns and relationships, financial literacy, health, probabilistic reasoning, chance and risk, and interpreting data presented in various forms.
